Bb Mailbag: The Idea Exchange


Blackboard Mailbag

Welcome to the Blackboard Mailbag, where we feature a commonly asked question that has been hitting our mailbox recently: Check out our Bb Mailbag archive of previous Blackboard questions and answers or visit for additional resources.  

Note:  Features may change with future updates.   

Q:  There are features that I miss and wish Blackboard would bring back. How do I submit a request? 

A:  Blackboard’s parent company Anthology hosts The Idea Exchange.  This is a place specifically for Blackboard to track and manage enhancement requests. It allows for things like upvoting ideas and sharing development plans and statuses. You will need to create an account to access the Idea Exchange.

When you add an idea, vote on an idea, or comment on an idea, you will become a subscriber and will automatically be notified when there are changes to the idea.

For example:
